Pernštejn Castle (Czech: hrad Pernštejn) is a castle located on a rock above the village of Nedvědice and the rivers of Svratka and Nedvědička, some 40 km northwest of Brno, Czech Republic.

It was founded by the Lords of Medlov before 1285. The family branch seated at the castle adopted the then fashionable name Pernštejn, which is the Czech version of the original German name, Bärenstein - "the Bear Rock". Its history is closly connected to the Lords of Pernštejn (Pernštejnové) and their descendants. The castle is one of the most preserved castles in Czech Republic.
